METS Trade Show expands online community feature

The METS Trade Show officially launched its new online community as a year-round addition to the annual event.

The METS Trade Show officially launched its new online community as a year-round addition to the annual event.

It has been designed to allow companies and other stakeholders to connect and share content related to the latest industry developments in the same way they do at the show in Amsterdam.

Organizers said the new resource also will serve an invaluable tool for preparing for business and networking at the METS Trade Show and following up on contacts made there.

“The METS Trade Online Community offers a great opportunity to share our knowledge on the composite marine market and contribute to its further development,” 3A Composites Core Material global accounts president Eric Gauthier said in a statement. “We are excited about supporting the growth of this dynamic market.”

Users can share information about coming products or services, recently solved or ongoing challenges, research, white papers, news articles and interviews, and video content.

Organizers said users who require help editing their content can forward it to the METS Trade Online Community team for finalization and uploading.

“We’re very excited about the addition of the METS Trade Online Community to the METS Trade platform,” RAI Amsterdam's Maritime METS Trade manager Irene Dros said.

“It is an innovative new element which offers the sector a wide range of in-depth information, a unique opportunity to share knowledge from across the industry and the possibility to connect 365 days a year. We trust the online community will complement and support the annual METS Trade Show in Amsterdam while providing a useful permanent platform outside of the exhibition period.”
